They are not really a bean, but a small succulent plant that grows near salt water. This particular species, Salicornia virginica used raw, made a tasty briny garnish for pan roasted cod. Funny enough because of it’s crunch and pickly flavor, we also found it a nice complement to a creamy funky cheese like Taleggio.

I love sea beans, I used it as an ingredient while making rottini pasta, when I was in Puglia, Italy.
Those are easy to find here. What’s a good way to prepare them?
